SAN DIEGO — The investigation continued Wednesday into the death of a senior citizen who was struck and killed by an SUV on a Fallbrook street.
The collision was reported shortly after 6:35 p.m. Tuesday on South Mission Road near Peppertree Lane, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The victim, who was in his 70s, was crossing South Mission Road in front of the Rodeway Inn when he was struck by a 2013 GMC Yukon driven by a 78- year-old man, according to the CHP.
Paramedics took the pedestrian to Temecula Valley Hospital in Riverside County, where he was pronounced dead. His name was withheld pending family notification.
The Yukon’s driver remained at the scene, cooperated with the investigation and “was not under the influence,” according to a CHP statement.
